Greetings from the desert!
Had a truly spectacular time filming with these amazing talented artists in the Mojave desert for Ruth Weiss, The Beat Goddess - Documentary!
Worked with professional dance artist and choreographer Ida Victoria Herndon who created a spectacular performance on camera to ruth weiss’s most notable books "Desert Journal”, 1977
"ruth weiss has been sounding these poems, alone or with jazz accompaniment, for many years. Her poems are of the rhythms of our time and the interlaced, repetitive subtleties are sewn by that 'thread for those who breathe in rags' which bespeaks and sings the deep loom of the bronze lotus." — Jack Hirschman
GROUP PICTURE WITH THE TEAM
“Ruth Weiss, The Beat Goddess Documentary“ is powerful short documentary about an extraordinary poet taking a journey into the heart and passion of one of the most brilliant voices of the American Counter-Culture Movement.
Grateful to work with such a fabulous strong woman! Ida Victoria Herndon is an amazing artist who gave a stunning performance and dance tribute to Ruth Weiss's Desert Journal Poems!!
